Hudson Valley Photographer { Elora Zamora }

So this is Elora, a gorgeous singer here in Hudson Valley.  She came to me, wanting to up her game with some great pictures for her singing career.  She knew how important branding yourself can be to getting that next big gig.  For other people to take you seriously, first you need to take your own career seriously.  Because she was such a pretty girl already, I knew that I could get away with doing simple looks for her, because I knew she would be able to really carry the shots.  It really depends on peoples personalities when you’re doing shots like these.  If they are interesting enough I think you can get away with simpler

Well I’ve been  trying to stay on top of blogging lately.  We’ve been having a lot of fun around the house lately.  I’ve really been enjoying the down time around here.  I spent a week in austin a few weeks ago, and after that, I’ve been able to take some more time for myself.  Which is great, because while I’ve been booking less work lately, they’ve been a bit more well paid, which means I can take more time on my clients and that’s something that I really love.

Overall I’ve been really happy with my work lately.  I do kinda have the feeling that I’ve hit another plateau, at the same time the effort it’s going to take to move m

Kerryn came in honestly not completely sure exactly what she was after.  No worries from me.  We worked together to get some great portraits of her.  Honestly, quite a few people come to me, wanting to get a great portrait of themselves with just a bit of a fashion flare.  That’s what I love abo

Charlie An { Hudson Valley Editorial Portrait Photographer }

I’ve been meaning to write up these shots for a while.  Charlie came in wanting some great modeling pictures something that was a bit more high fashion.  I really loved the way that these shots came out.  Charlie came in for 3 looks, and these were my 2 favorite looks.  That first look is something I’ve been wanting to try more and more of, something that’s shot a bit more wide open, with a ton of really great light.  I’ve been getting plenty of use out of my apple boxes, and I really love them.  They have to by one of my favorite tools when I’m working in the studio.  Whether I’m using them to stand on

Lamont R&B Singer { Hudson Valley Editorial Portrait Photographer }

Well I’ve been extra pensive lately.  As much as I love shooting the fashion… it just hasn’t been booking me enough gigs lately.  I’ve actually had a renewed interest in shooting more food.  I know it’s weird, but when you were raised by a grandmother who absolutely loved to cook.  And taught you basically everything you could ever want to know, you end up with a man who’s passionate about good food.  And I know there a ton of foodies out there, but have they ever actually made home made pasta?  It’s easy to talk the talk, but when you actually grew up cooking french gourmet food, I think you ju

I actually don’t know how long it’s been since I took these shots.  It feels like forever, but that’s just because of how booked I’ve been lately.  Believe me I’m not complaining, as a matter of fact it’s awesome to have so many bookings lately, but that means that what should seem like a day, actually seems like an hour when I look back.  It’s crazy how time can fly when you’re really enjoying what you’re working on.  And let me tell you lately I couldn’t be happier working on the things that I’m working on.   I’ve been creating some really fantastic images for my clients, and it’s such a great feeling to

Lindsey Vonn Revisit { Hudson Valley Editorial Portrait Photographer }

I’m starting to realize more and more how important editorial portraiture is to me.  I honestly love capturing someones character.  Headshots are fun and all, but I love it when I have a client that wants me to tell a story.  Lately, my headshot sessions have been turning into me doing more fashion oriented portraits of my clients.  Which has caused me to start thinking more and more about where I want my photography to go this next year.  This is going to be a big year for me, and while I can’t share all the details there certainly is going to be some major changes in my life.  I’m getting married first off, and after that who knows w

Well I’m certainly trying to stay on top of my blogging.  I wouldn’t say I’m doing a great job of it, but I’ve been doing better than I was before.  The weather here in Hudson Valley has really been fantastic out lately, which has a great effect of putting me in a fantastic mood.  It also means that I start to get really inspired.  I would say that I have a tendency to hibernate in the winter time.  It’s just not my favorite time to shoot.  I love working with natural light, and interesting backdrops, with great people.  In the winter time, what I refer to as studio season I tend to get a bit bored of doing the same

Oh man was this a fun shoot.  Leah came in for some headshots, and we had planned on a nice sunny day.  That wasn’t exactly what happened though.  As soon as she showed up to start hair and makeup it started snowing.  It was abundantly clear it was going to be a different shoot entirely.  I was super excited about shooting in the s
